CAL Press Books

CAL Press, in various incarnations, has been around since 1975. We have published a lot of material — mostly tabloids, magazines, leaflets and posters — during that time, including a few books. The books include the following published works and works in progress.

Future Primitive  by John Zerzan. (1994) A collection of some of John Zerzan’s best work, reprinted from Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed, and co-published with Autonomedia (Brooklyn, NY).

Anarchy after Leftism by Bob Black. (1997) This is a classic rebuttal of Murray Bookchin’s incoherent, ideological tirade titled Social Anarchism and Lifestyle Anarchism: An Unbridgeable Chasm.

Elements of Refusal by John Zerzan. (1999) A second, expanded edition of the original, best and most important collection of John Zerzan’s writings, including essays that originally appeared in the Telos journal and the Fifth Estate newspaper. Published in both hardcover and paperback editions.

Stirner’s Critics by Max Stirner, translated by Wolfi Landstreicher, with an introduction by Jason McQuinn. (2012) This is a complete translation of Max Stirner’s published response to the critics of The Unique and Its Own (Der Einzige und sein Eigentum), including both “Stirner’s Critics” and “The Philosophical Reactionaries.”

The Unique and Its Own by Max Stirner, translated by Steven Byington, edited with a new introduction by Jason McQuinn. (Projected publication this coming winter 2013-2014.)
